Comments Poppy's Return

  • Emily

    This is the story of Poppy, a female mouse. Poppy lives happily in Dimwood Forest. She lives with her husband, Rye, a golden mouse, and all her delightful children. Well, every child, except her rudest, Ragweed Jr. Ragweed was named after Rye's brother, the first Ragweed. Ragweed Jr. is a "teenager" and is very snotty. His best friend is a skunk! Poppy is very happy in Dimwood Forest, except for one day, when her sister comes to Dimwood Forest to tell Poppy some very bad news: Their father, Lung [...]

    I liked Poppy better. Poppy's Return has too much rebellion, "swearing" in it. Like: using words to make it sound like cussing: "freaking," and "name calling." It was a great story, it's just that one of the animals moves in to a porcupines house to learn how to "swear." I don't think that I'd have my children read this book until they are in their mid-teens because of that fact. I know I must be old-fashioned, but I don't want my children getting the wrong ideas. I do like the storyline and how [...]

    Junior and Memfitis were Hilarious! Even though Poppy regretted taking them along, I thought it was a good idea. They are SO hilarious!


  • Sharon Romero

    The book was good. Poppy is a good mouse, but she has a family of her own, even though her ENTIRE mouse family needs her just because she defeated the leader owl a long time ago. There was a lot of adventure, and a funny part about Ragweed Jr. and the porcupine having an argument. The porcupine is my favorite character because he says things that seem serious to him but for me, there funny, I imagine him saying it with a cranky voice, but he is also cares about Poppy, even though he does not wan [...]

    Our family continues to enjoy this series. This story was excellent! The kid laughed and asked for it everyday. It had something for the whole range of ages of my kids and even for me. The illustrations are amazing!


  • Jennifer Wilkey

    It’s a cute book. Good messages about friendship and family and biases we have. I was a little bored, but hey, I’m an adult. My 8yo loved listening to it.


  • Lynn

    This is #5 in the Perma-Bound edition I read.Teenagers and aging parents! We always hope for the best, even if we're mice!This edition has a Reader's Theatre script in the back.


  • Irene

    *** Warning: This review contains SPOILERS!! ***I continue to like Poppy, the character. She is thoughtful and level-headed, and has a nice calming presence. The major theme in this book is family. I like that we see a bit of Poppy's insecurities as a parent. Perhaps some young readers, who may be inclined to be as disrespectful to their own parents as Junior is to his, will see that that sort of behavior is hurtful and unnecessary. Some lessons from this book: "Treat your parents respectfully." [...]


  • Sarah Eagle

    I was underwhelmed by this book, and it makes me sad.Gone was the clever political allegory of the first three books, and as of the previous book Ereth's Birthday. The main theme is family-oriented. But not in a way that feels original.I loved these books for their character development, their nuance, and the excellent prose. The cleverness of the plot was a huge bonus too, but I feel that whatever charm and wit the first three had is all but gone in this one. Poppy is reduced to a nagging, self [...]


  • Betsy

    My kids and I have enjoyed The Tales of Dimwood Forest, having listened to all of them on CD up to now. Poppy's Return wasn't available in audio format, so I checked out the actual book to read aloud to my childreny to discover a possible reason WHY it's not available in audio format. This book feels a little older in theme to me and involves Poppy's rebellious son. We've seen Ragweed be rebellious and even Poppy in her own way. We've also heard Ereth, the porcupine, swear in his own fashion ("s [...]


  • Kim Weaver

    I love this book, I have read it a few times, I first heard about the poppy series when my 4th grade teacher read them for read aloud. The book I read Poppy’s Return takes place in dimwood forest where Poppy, a mouse lives with her husband Rye, her 11 kids and her best friend Ereth, who is a grumpy old porcupine. When Poppy’s sister, Lilly comes to deliver a message to Poppy, that Poppy must return home to Gray house. Poppy agrees and goes on the journey, but she invites her rude son Junior, [...]


  • Jenny

    I love the first three Dimwood Forest books. I have shared them with elementary classes I teach and with my own kids. This book felt very different from the first three. The good: Poppy goes on a new adventure with her son, who learns to appreciate her as an actual person, not just a "mom". She also appreciates her son, and sees herself in him. My favorite line of the book, "Silence fills me." The not-so-good: the main conflict is that Poppy's son is going through the cliche rebellious teenager [...]


  • Shannon

    Book Description:There's trouble at Gray House, the girlhood home that Poppy left long ago. Poppy's family has called her back to save them all—mother, father, sisters and brothers, and dozens and dozens of deer mouse cousins. Poppy invites her rebellious son, Junior, to join her on the long trip across Dimwood Forest, hoping the journey will bring them closer together.But with Junior's skunk pal, Mephitis, and Ereth, the cantankerous porcupine, in tow—sugared slug soup!—Poppy and Junior m [...]


  • Ruth

    Oh I can't believe we finished all the Poppy books! Fortunately Andrew's aunt is visiting tonight or I think he would be in tears. Time to find another series that we can huddle up together and read under the covers. We enjoyed this series. I think this one was the most mature or the five. Less action, more concerns between parent and teen relationships. I liked this one the best. I think for Andrew it lacked a bit of action. Although Mephitis is now his second favorite character, that is second [...]


  • Bern

    My daughter and I are just starting the Poppy/Dimwood Forest books. We both enjoyed Poppy but this one left both of us flat. The story seems to come to a slight abrupt conclusion and while it's a parent's job to teach their child respect, I didn't care for the too sassy Ragweed Junior and his use of the word "freaking". The relationship between he and Poppy seemed to me be to one extreme or the other and fixed instantaneously. It leaves no explanation of Mephitis's backstory and overall, we fini [...]


  • sarafem

    This is the last in the Poppy series. Not as good as Ereth's Birthday, but better than Poppy or Poppy and Rye. Poppy is a very independent mouse that cut ties with her rigid family long ago. As her father ages and the family faces crisis, they seek her for leadership and guidance. The story is about how we define and value our families, whether "family" is made up of whom you are given or whom you choose, or both.


  • Ali Mandala

    Cute story. I really wish I had started with the first in the series as opposed to the 4th, but it's what was available to me. I wanted something quick and cute and I was not disappointed. It was adorable and did a great job showing differing family structures and how different family members feel. It really did a great job with the mother child relationship through a rough adolescence, the misunderstandings and sentiment that go behind the face of words.


  • Artslyz

    Like the other books in this series it is a cute animal "fantasy". Poppy's returning to her family in the Grey House to solve an upcoming tragedy, and she's bringing with her a rebellious son named after the mouse her family hated, Ragweed. Deals with some common family issues, including discrimination ("Who'd want to be friends with a porcupine / skunk??"


  • Annette

    This book was enjoyable to read because Poppy is a mother now and is struggling with a teenage son, I have three teenagers in my house now so I felt like I could relate to Poppy even though she is a mouse. I think there are enough funny moments with the son Junior and his skunk friend, Mephites to appeal to kids, too. I highly recommend this book to Poppy fans.


  • Anna

    This was a great book! I am reading the books out of order. I read Poppy first, then Poppy Returns. I still have the first book and the middle books left to read. It doesn't seem to matter a whole lot whether it is chronological, because old characters return. I thought the skunk (Mephitis) was a really good character but I still like Ereth the best.


  • Chelsea D.

    I feel like less happened in this book than in the others, but still excellent, loved the character development, and of course loved Junior and Mephitis :) I can't believe I didn't know about the last two books until recently, but I feel that my life is a little more complete knowing that the series has a real ending. I look forward to Poppy and Ereth when I pick up the final story.


  • Lisa

    This one caught me off guard. My 10 year old read it and loved it so I thought I would give this little mouse adventure a try. I think we got totally different things out of it. For me, it was a darling story of the relationship between a mother and her struggling teenage son. I love Poppy and her strength as a mother, daughter, sister and wife. I know, she's a mouse, but I was really touched.


  • Deashanea

    okay so in this book i about a little mouse that is trying to get back home because its been a long since she seen her family and she is also going over there to see her father and to make sure that everything at home is going well with her father because her sister said that her father was ill or sick


  • Elfiegirl

    Poppy and Rye have a problem. Their son, Ragweed the second, is just plain trouble. When Poppy is called home on some very serious family matters, she plans to take her son along with her to make them feel closer together. But, what will happen when Ragweed the second brings his best friend, a skunk along?


  • Leah

    This book is full of action, adventure, fun and much more.when poppy has her first litter and also had married Rye she decides to see her family again. But she brings one of her children with her to met her family. But then the people decide to do something. So Poppy has to help keep her family safe. What will happen!


  • Eliana

    Poppy (the mouse) is trying to break down a bulldozer so it will not destroy the grey house. That is where the mice live, but not Poppy. Ragweed Junior, Poppy's teenage son, is helping her shut down the bulldozer. This is a cute mouse story that young middle school students will enjoy.


  • Rebecca

    Ennnhhh. Not as good as the first "Poppy" book, but OK. Has a lot of "freaking" in it, to depict a young rapscallion mouse. And as I felt obligated to skip over that word for my kids, they missed out on some of the humor. I think the book relied on that more than a well-written tale.


  • Donna Hunt

    Poppy finally goes back home to help the family, bringing along an unruly son and a skunk. This is cause for havoc in her father's eyes and yet all involved have something important to learn, different isn't always bad, looks aren't always truthful, and true friendship stick it out to the end.


  • Heather

    Another amazing book continuing Poppy's adventures


  • Gisell

    It is cool it is very intersting and fun to read, people should really try this book.
